For those who still do not know it, Hyper Light Drifter is a 2D action role-playing game fashioned after The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, rendered in a pixelated style comparable to Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. The player controls the Drifter, a character that has access to technology that has long been forgotten by the inhabitants of the game’s world and is suffering from an unspecified illness. The story concept was inspired by lead developer Alex Preston’s heart disease and has been likened by others to Studio Ghibli’s Castle in the Sky, while Preston cites the studio’s Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind as inspiration for the game’s world.
